Distance Learning Policy
Additional policies and procedures exist that might be applicable.
Dupré Library provides resources and support to the university’s distant learning programs, as directed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) guidelines regarding the provision of library services to distant learners. Three requirements are stipulated:
blue button To ensure provision of and ready access to adequate library resources and services to support the courses, programs, and degrees offered
blue button To provide comparable services to offsite students by either owning the needed materials, or by providing electronic access, or by arranging formal borrowing agreements
blue button To designate a Distance Learning Librarian who will have responsibility for ensuring these resources and services
Library Services for Distance Learning
Remote access to all of the library’s numerous electronic databases provides distance patrons with identical access of resources as offered to the on-campus patrons. Other resources are available through Dupré Library’s membership in LALINC, a cooperative statewide borrowing agreement. The needs of distant learning students are also supported by other library service departments (Reference, Interlibrary Loan and Inf. Tech & Web Services) as Dupré Library actively supports the needs of distant learning in our educational community.
